Twenty8 is a beautiful, small, boutique range of products designed to make you look and feel great with amazing self-care and skincare rituals. Below is an example of how to use the various products, but remember this is not a hard and fast rule.
You can change it up, you can add in a few drops of a particular essential oil to boost products and you can swap products according to your skin’s needs. The most important outcome we strive for is that as you embrace these special rituals you fall more and more in love with the skin you’re in. You are beautiful. Don’t ever forget that.
MORNING RITUALS FOR THE FACE
Gently cleanse the skin with the Ultimate Cleanser. Apply about a half pump of product onto your finger-tips, massage in to the skin. Then rinse with a face washer to remove. Repeat if you have time, the first cleanse can be done in the shower and helps to remove surface bacteria and impurities whilst the second cleanse is deeper and even more effective.
Compress or Spritz
Compressing is the ultimate skin treat. Add four drops of your Toner Concentrate into a bowl or sink of warm water and then using a face washer that has been immersed in this water. Squeeze out the excess and then gently compress onto the face with a press and release action. This gently exfoliates the skin and boosts skin cell replenishment. This part of your skincare ritual is the ultimate as it boosts how refreshed your skin looks and feels. If you do not have time to compress then you can use your Toner Concentrate by adding 10 drops into a 50ml spritzer bottled filled with water. Spritz 3-4 times over the face and neck.
Spritz & Hydrate
Refresh and hydrate with skin with your Toner Concentrate spritzer just before you moisturise. You can use the Lavender or Rose Flower Hydrosols in place of the Toner Concentrate if you prefer.
These exquisite spritzers are a wonderful tool to use throughout the day. Simply carry in your hand-bag and spritz to refresh and hydrate as needed.
Boost Your Skin
Apply a thin layer of the Healing Skin Boost onto the slightly damp skin created by the compressing or spritzing ritual. This incredible boosting gel is your skins best kept secret. It helps to tighten and tone the pores, helps to heal any blemishes and is a brilliant natural make up primer.
You can also apply the Healing Skin Boost as a spot treatment for pimples, skin irritations and blemishes.
Lip and Eye Care
The Coconut Mint Lip Balm is a wonderful moisturiser for the lips. With peppermint and shea butter this creamy minty balm is a beautiful treatment and worth carrying in your handbag for extra hydration throughout your day.
If you are not one to wear makeup, the Firming Eye and Lip Cream is the most incredible uplifter and enhancer for the delicate tissue around the eyes and around the lips. It is deeply nourishing and a rich treatment for this area. Apply with a finger dabbing action around each eye socket and over the lips paying attention to any fine lines with love.
Nourish and Moisturise
Massage your preferred Balance or Nourish Moisturiser gently into your skin to help stimulate blood flow, increase circulation and support the lymphatic system. Remember you can add a drop of your favourite essential oil to give it an added boost.
Or, if you feel your skin needs extra nourishment you can apply either the Ester Plus (+) or Face Lift Serum under the Moisturiser to help tone, penetrate and hydrate the deeper layers.
MORNING ROUTINE – BODY
The Body Boost ritual is probably the most life transforming self-care ritual of all. The Body Boost is quick, effective, amazing for as a body and skin treatment and an incredible way to start and end your day. It is our number one Twenty8 signature ritual that we encourage all who know us to take on for a minimum of twenty-eight days.
Simply fill a small ceramic bowl with one teaspoon of Massage Carrier Base Oil. Add three drops in total of your chosen essential oils or blend. And you can spray 4-5 sprays of Magnesium Health Spray for added health and wellness support.
Massage a very light amount from your toes to your head in quick circular motions to activate and wake the skin up, stimulate the lymphatic system and nourish and hydrate your whole body.
And here is the magic… When you reach the head take a moment to just stop, holding your hands over your face and take three nice deep breaths. Now is the time to anchor in any positive affirmations and be eternally grateful for this amazing machine we will call the body and give thanks for all we have.

We recommend you do not underestimate your bathroom moments.
